Quick Overview

A main fixture in the artistic oeuvre of National Artist BenCab, Sabel has transformed throughout the years since she started her appearance in the mid-60’s. In this constant transition, the muse has become a platform for the artist’s different explorations of beauty and aesthetics.

Whether she was embodying the weight of societal infringement in her heavy black and white inked form as she was in her first conception, or later when she was dancing in an exploration of cloth, shape, and color, Sabel has always been a picture of beauty—a discussion on both its visual and phenomenological implications. With her signature smile, Sabel has allowed the artist, alongside his entranced audience, to explore the everchanging and encompassing iterations of beauty in all its possible meanings.

Here, blanketed in volumes of cloth and flanked by a richness of red, the famed muse exudes a feminine charm, one filled with inviting eyes and a playfulness in her movement.
